6:04 pm
win. >> you selfish little girl. in doing so, you may have cost him his greatest loss. >> playing mean every week. does that bring you joy? >> it does. you know, because i think we all have a real dark streak in us. and because we're just not allowed to act out, unless you're a total sociopath or borderline personality, which i actually think victoria is. i have been doing a lot of reading about border line personalities. you just can't do it, so it's cathartic, wonderful. i think we're living in very interesting times right now where there is a celebration of the self, and people are constantly self advertising and self promoting. i see essentially nothing wrong with it, but i don't tweet, i don't facebook, i don't do any of those things because i know i would be checking every two seconds, and i'm getting kind of worried that we're all going to have some kind of a society that has a narcicisstic disorder. i'm being heavy here, but it's
6:05 pm
really interesting because each time one checks their phone, there's this kind of instant gratification. and it's like a rat with a pellet, you know, they kind of -- >> part of the reason i wanted you to join us is to talk about how wonderfully you have aged. i understand i'm allowed to mention your age. >> you can mention my age. i'm 54 years old. >> 54, thank you. just confirmed. it's a dangerous thing to do otherwise. i would predict that your body thinks you're a lot younger than that. i must point this out to everybody. i didn't realize this until i was preparing for the show. i'll read this, people magazine's most beautiful issue, in 1994, and in 2012. that's an 18-year span. how do you stay so youthful? what's the secret? >> if you're just talking about pragmatic things, i like to hike. you know, which is really important. but i also believe in not overexercising, which i don't follow any of the doctors' rules about that. i think it places too much strain and stress on the body. i think that you have to do things you enjoy, but more than
6:06 pm
anything, i'm really engaged in sort of what i like to think is my life's work. i love my work as an actor, but i'm involved with an organization in haiti. since 2008, since before the quake, and there are these remarkable people led by a man who is a doctor and a catholic priest, and they serve probably about 250,000 people a year through education, through health care. you know, through labor programs, all kinds of things. >> you get your purpose in pa part -- >> they give it to me. when i go down there, there's this sense of euphoria i feel in spite of the fact you're surrounded by very difficult situations. i mean, there are people who have been all over the world, and when they go to haiti, they're in a good bit of shock, but the people are incredibly vibrant. they have embraced me. they have allowed me to partially heal a deep wound that happened when i was a child.
6:07 pm
that went on for many years, my father had multiple sclerosis and alzheimer's at the same time. he deteriorated very rapidly, and i was helpless, but when i go there, there are things i can do to help these people, and they help me in return. you know, they heal these psychic wounds. so when i'm not doing it, i feel as if i'm imploding. you know, it's just something in my character. i feel as if i'm starting to go into a bit of a depression. but when i feel i can be effective, then i feel vibrant and alive and engaged with the world. i think that's the most important thing. >> this deep psychic wound you refer to, is this the powerlessness you felt in your father's illness? >> yes, i don't want to be dark, but when i was 6 years old, he completely lost all ability to walk, his mental faculties, he had real violent tendencies, so we had to live kind of secret lives. and i developed, i think, over
6:08 pm
time, a pattern of keeping secrets very well. and it's very important not to do that. it's important not to lie in life. you know? because even if you're telling small lies, larger ones start to happen. and i feel that you are no longer true to yourself, you know, and it affects your relationships. i'm not saying i was a path logical liar or anything like that, but you tend to draw that in from the outside world, and the most important thing you can do is make your life as real as possible and ground yourself in work that is really meaningful. >> how is your temperament? >> my temperament, it's interesting. most people would say i'm quite even. it's very interesting. i was having a conversation with a man last night, christopher stone, who runs the soros foundation, the open society foundation, and we were talking about an instance that happened in haiti where i was at a rice -- a place where they stored rice, and it was right after the quake.
6:09 pm
and gunshots were going off. and i had no reaction. i had zero reaction. the men were pulling me to the ground, and there was sort of no fear, but what i have is a lot of anxiety. things whir through my mind a lot, my mind goes a mile a minute, so i'm not a great sleeper. if you have sujnlzs for that, bring them on. >> sleep is a major issue. half the population over the age of 50 has an issue with it. let me focus back on you and your checklist. you seem very feisty to me. >> yeah, yeah. >> you can get what you want, so i'm going to quiz you on how you deal with some of these issues. obviously, the fifth decade of life is supposed to be our happiest decade. do you find yourself in a happy place? >> the morning i turned 50, i walked into my coffee shawm, and i said, i'm 50, and it feels great. 50s, to anybody who worries about reaching that age, it feels like that marvelous time in your early 30s.
6:10 pm
you know, where life has all kinds of possibilities. you have come into your own, and it's wonderful. 40s are tricky. you know, 40s, you're doing a lot of questioning, but 50s, you feel like you have to put the burn on and accomplish the things in life you always dreamed of because there's not that much time. we're not -- maybe i'll live to be 90. my mother was 98. it still doesn't seem like enough time. >> it's been studied. everything you say resonates with so many folks because you work some of the craziness out of your life. your check list, you mentioned activity. you think you're active for 30 minutes a day? >> yes, for the most part. probably about five times a week, i do an hour hike. >> perfect. do you floss your teeth? >> yes. >> you do? >> i love my dentist. i love my dentist and i love getting my teeth cleans. >> do you supplement? >> say again. >> do you take supplements? >> not as much as i should. i take fish oil capsules. >> good.
6:11 pm
>> with coq10, and then i take a powder supplement that has all of the b vitamins. >> first, with a father who had issues with ms, and did he have any of the neurological issues besides that? >> yes, he used to have grand mall seizures. >> it's worth focusing on you potentially having those genes or weaknesses in those areas. vitamin d is important for ms. omega 3 is important for any brain health. if i get anything across today, omega 3. >> they're wonderful, and they leave your skin. that's from that. that's what it does. >> omega 3 fats. multivitamins with extra d and calcium/magnesium. >> i do take sinthroid so it's important in terms of bone loss to have that supplement. >> do you meditate, take time to yourself? >> hell no. >> making sure you don't.
6:12 pm
5 minutes at a time, its a's yo time. go to the bathroom, don't tell anybody you're there. hide out there, you're in the bathroom. even those five minutes make a difference. how many push-ups can you do? >> not enough. i do pilates, which is really wonderful. >> roughly ten push-ups is sort of the goal? >> i can do that. >> the final test, stand for me. the balance test. the ballerina in you is going to step forward. someone our age ought to be able to stand on one foot. go on one foot. >> uh-huh. >> then you have to close your eye. >> we're so sunk. i'm so scared. >> 20 seconds. i'm holding you. >> 20 seconds? not even. >> four seconds is not bad. >> we're going to do it again. wait, wait. can i lightly hold on to you because i'm in high heels? >> one, two. it's not lightly holding on. >> terrible. >> have a seat. a lot of folks don't realize this, but balance is an acquired art. there are three parts of your brain that have to work together for balance. you have to know where your body is, you can use your eyes or
6:13 pm
ears and those three have to dance together. when we lose our sense of balance, that's when falls happen. people have to do what we did, practice on one leg, one leg up, with an eye closed, but you can do it. >> okay. >> let me go back to the one issue, purpose. it's striking to me how you have been able to accomplish that purpose in your life and i applaud you because that's probably the most important tip at all. if your haeart has a reason to keep beating, it will. you mentioned sleep. you talked about work and dreams. >> insane, insane dreams i have. is that what you said? >> yes. >> oh, god. they're incredibly vivid and they don't stop, which must mean that i'm not having a certain quality of sleep. is that correct? >> later in the show, we'll walk you through dreams. why so many of us don't have the right kinds. i have high hopes you're going to benefit. >> i'm going to remind our audience of one of the greatest moments of film history. take a look.
6:14 pm
>> you've done everything you can do. save yourself. if the worst happens -- >> you stay alive. do you hear? yo you'll survive. stay alive, no matter what occurs. i will find you. >> wasn't that fabulous? >> i remember that day. i was smashed. >> you were smashed? >> it was so cold. it had just hit winter and we were filming in this cave. i think it was about 22 degrees, and i was liquored up. i'm sorry to tell you, but i remember it very vividly because it was so cold. >> what an iconic moment. >> i love that movie. >> next, age is not just a number. grammy awaurrd winner and music icon cyndi lauper gets ready to celebrate a very big birthday.

6:31 pm
work place. i don't smoke, but as a musician, i played so many clubs, especially before smoking was banned, i would play clubs were people were smoking and i would insist that we do a smoke-free show. sometimes the owners would get angry. the fans loved it. i was in europe around smoke. that might have skewed thing said. >> that's such a wonderful number. just to give texture to this, obviously, the real age is what your body thinks you're doing. how old your body thinks you are. so again, a simple little test. what i like about the test is if gives you a barometer of how you're doing in life. if your body thinks you're 37.9, it makes the pregnancies a little easier. >> the pregnancies were totally healthy, natural. i had some drugs when i was having the babies at a certain point. it's a crazy experience, but luckily, i was able to do it, you know, without any special magic. i will say, though, because people ask me a lot on my website, is it true, did you really have them? are they your kids and all that?
6:32 pm
but i think it's so important because a lot of women in their 30s and 40s talk to me. i think it's so important to find out what's going on with your body. even if you're not married or not sure if you're going to do it on your own. there are so many things people go through when they're thinking about having kids, but they're too scared to find out what's going oon with their own bodies. >> were you nervous about getting pregnant that late? >> i didn't feel nervous. i knew i should be nervous. i knew i should be really focused on it. again, i didn't feel old. again, my doctor said you may feel young but your body may not. as the years went by, i found out what i could do to find out about my own body and if it was possible and what my options were. in the end, i was lucky and got pregnant. >> we have done a lot of shows on fertility and it drops precipitously after age 35. the optimal age to get pregnant, believe it or not, if you
6:33 pm
actually marry the health of your body with your socioeconomic issues, it's age 30. >> that makes sense. i mean, but being a person who is 30 and not being in a relationship that's leading to having children, as another doctor said to me, you are where you are. you are where you are so you have to deal with where you are. now, you know, it's frustrating to hear when you're e38, you would have been better off having a kid eight years ago. what are you going to do? it's important, you're great about that, educating people, and people learning about their own bodies so they can figure out what their options actually are. >> let me tease into your life, find out where you are. i have a quiz for you. you talk about general health habits. what's a typical breakfast? >> every day, i have two breakfasts. ezequiel bread which is a great sprouted grain bread with almond butter. that's my first breakfast with a comolcoffee with 2% milk and a little sugar. >> very precise. >> that's my morning. then my second breakfast and my

priorities other than my kids themselves. themselves, sleep is my top priority. as a singer, i have to sleep or i'll get sick. so i was familiar with the idea that sleep is the most important thing. eight hours is perfect, seven is doable, six is okay but not for too many days in a row. i take naps, and again, i drink my one cup of coffee in the morning, but if i'm tired in the afternoon, i try to get a nap. every once in a while, i have an extra cup, but unless my work really needs me to be there or my kids or my husband, i really, even if i can fall asleep and wake back up again -- >> a power nap. >> in fact, when i was pregnant with my daughter, i would carry ear plugs with me, pull over on the side of the room, put my ear plugs in, lie back, and fall asleep. >> you never got arrested? >> no. >> question for all three of you, do any of you take sleep medications? >> i sometimes take melatonin. >> melatonin?
